Grow Your Nonfiction Author Business in August

A primary way to grow your nonfiction author business is speaking engagements.

Though you may start with unpaid speaking engagements (which should include selling your book at the back of the room) you want to become a paid speaker. You can learn about how to do that in the article Transitioning to Paid Speaking at the Nonfiction Authors Association website.

This month’s tip: Pitch yourself as a speaker for an event—either in person or for an online conference.

Tell us about your speaking engagements in the comments below. What do you have coming up? What have been your recent successes? What holds you back from speaking engagements?

Grow Your Nonfiction Author Business in May

YouTube logoMay’s tip to grow your author business:

Record a video

Get creative. Talk about your book. Share your top 10 tips. Post it to YouTube and share it on all your social media platforms.

It doesn’t have to be a polished professionally-edited work of art. It’s far more important that it’s genuine, sincere, a proper representation of you as a person and as an author. Your cell phone and a bit of preparation is all you need.
